Box To Box Treater

Adding to the problem is the fact that seeds cannot be returned or saved for the next growing season once they are treated. Farmers run the risk of wasting money on inappropriately treated seeds year after year.

A Responsive Solution to Treating Seeds

Farmers have to order treated seeds form large companies several months before the growing season begins. The process is set up to give the companies time to treat, package, and deliver seeds to farms. That works well for the company, but can lead to problems for the farmers. Depending on the weather, soil condition, and rotation schedule of crops, the ordered seeds may not be suitable for the planting.

Problems

Heavy rains, for example, can saturate fields or cause erosion. If the ordered Seed Treatment does not include a chemical to protect seeds from excess moisture, those seeds may not produce a bountiful yield. A sudden period of drought can also have the same effect. Ordering seeds so far in advance leaves farmers unable to respond to unexpected conditions.

Adding to the problem is the fact that seeds cannot be returned or saved for the next growing season once they are treated. Farmers run the risk of wasting money on inappropriately treated seeds year after year. Coupled with a mediocre yield, farmer may find themselves struggling to meet all expenditures.

Ability to Be Responsive

Farmers need a way to treat seeds just before planting to compensate for any unexpected conditions. This is especially important now that weather is becoming increasingly unpredictable. An affordable alternative is to purchase Seed Treaters for the farm. Instead of ordering early and estimating the amount of seed needed, farmers can have a box seed treater delivered and set up on the property.

Even Seed Coverage

Seeds can go from the treatment process directly to the fields. In addition to being responsive, it also provides consistency of coverage and better quality assurance. Large companies produce treated seeds in massive barrels which can lead to poor coverage. The conveyor belt taking seeds to the packaging area can cause chemicals to rub off some seeds. Packaging adds another risk in that it can damage seeds.

All that movement and all those processes involved in utilizing a box to box treater compromises the seeds and can dramatically affect the harvest. Treating seeds with custom blends in small batches increases the likelihood of successful crops. It also gives farmers more control over operations.

Saving Money

Machinery for treating seeds is available in three sizes to accommodate the unique needs of each farmer. Pricing is affordable and flexible financing is offered. Payment terms can be arranged for monthly, quarterly, or annually depending on the preferences of farmers.

Most farmers who are currently using on-site machinery have reported a full return on the investment in the first growing season. The others realized a full return on two to three seasons. Be responsive to changing needs and conditions by treating seeds as they are needed.
